Mayapur Nrsimhadeva’s TOVP Temple is scheduled for completion and opening in 2023. While Lord Nrsimha will not be relocated into His new home at this time, this milestone event will herald the Grand Opening of the TOVP in 2024.

Altar dimensions: 8m / 26’5 ” (width) x 11m / 36’7″ (length) x 11m / 37’2 “(height).
For the Nrsimhadeva Altar, we use black Italian and green Brazilian marble. Gold plating is represented by gold leaf and other treatments such as gold on metal plating.
The altar lamps are custom designed in a traditional style from brass with decorative elements in the form of peacocks, lotuses and other floral designs. These lamps are designed for artificial lighting with electric wicks.
The altar has a lot of gold decorative ornamentation on green and black marble. This is mainly plant decoration. Other symbolic details such as chakras and clubs are located along the frieze of the Altar.
The arch around Lord Nrsimhadeva is made in the traditional Indian style in colors suitable for the image of Lord Nrsimhadeva (black, red, gold). The arch supports an umbrella and lamps with natural wicks. It is made of black marble. Red inserts are made with special paint on marble. Gold decorative elements made of gold leaf, coated with a special varnish.
The chakra with a diameter of 5.7m / 18’8 “is located on the wall behind the arch. It is a bas-relief on the wall of polished marble, which will beautifully reflect the falling light, creating a background and mood corresponding to Lord Nrsimhadeva.
The altar doors are made of black painted teak. The doors are framed with decorative brass ornaments and inlaid with floral designs of semi-precious stones and miniature bas-reliefs such as the heads of lions.
